Program

CATHOLIC CULTURE AT THE CORE

Daily Mass sets the tone for the Church at Study, as does Angelus at lunch and prayer before each class.  The beauty of God is regularly made present in our Advent and Easter Concerts, as well as in our yearly Shakespeare productions.  These events bring the families together in work and fun.  We celebrate an All Hallows festival, St. Joseph’s Table and regular awareness of the feast of the day.  Solidarity between all the students is our constant goal, always modeled in class and much aided by daily sports in the lunch hour, as well as in our new Runners’ Club and Rugby.

Cohorts  remain  together  as  a  small  community of  eager  learners  progressing  from  Pre-Primary  I  to  Upper  School  IV.
